Adjusting ALKO brake shoes for trailers
Trailer ALKO brake shoes always need to be adjusted periodically. You can do this with the adjusting screw on the back of the brake drum. There are also alko brake shoes that are adjusted automatically. This ensures that you no longer have to do this manually and the ALKO Brake Shoes Trailer are always adjusted after wear and tear. This always ensures a shorter braking distance and optimum adjustment. You can use this in the existing brake drums from ALKO type 2051 and 2361 from 1999. Manufacturers are also experimenting a lot with brake discs. This hydraulic braking system is similar to modern cars and also very effective. For cost reasons, manufacturers make little or no use of it. ALKO Brake drums with ALKO Trailer brake shoes are still preferred to the more expensive disc alternative.

For this reason, leading manufacturers of leisure vehicles, commercial vehicles and trailers trust our products. Our end customers also trust the high level of quality and safety of AL-KO products. Therefore, the use of original replacement parts is an important aspect for optimal safety of your customers' vehicles. As we know, imitation parts from different manufacturers are constantly coming onto the market. However, the result of our latest inspection and research shows clear quality differences: the imitation parts are more susceptible to corrosion, which compromises your customers' safety on the road. After 24 hours in the salt spray chamber (Votsch VSC 450), strong traces of rust were present in test sample 1 and partial rust formation in test sample 2. The AL-KO series 2051 brake shoes passed the test without any visible traces of rust.
